When most of us think of vehicle glass tint, we think about how it changes the appearance of the vehicle. A vehicle with tinted windows looks nicer and the design flows a little better. This is the reason most people have window tint installed on their vehicle. However, in this article, I want to share with you three additional benefits of window tinting that you likely never thought of.
Three Benefits of Vehicle Glass Tint You Likely Have Never Thought Of
- Protection From The Sun’s Harmful UV Rays – While most of us would not consider going out for a day in the sun without using some form of UV protection, we often spend hours in our cars being impacted by the same rays with unprotected skin. Th vehicle glass, even the factory tinted variety, does very little to stop the harmful portion of the sun’s rays from reaching you. That is where window film comes in. Most window film will block 99% of the sun’s harmful rays from penetrating the glass. It’s almost like sunscreen for your car.

- Improved Comfort – We all know that excessive heat and glare can be a problem when driving. That is why cars come equipped with sun visors and most come with some factory tinted glass. These things are meant to block glare and reduce heat. However, they do a poor job at best. You often cannot get the sun visor positioned just right to block the sun and the factory tinted glass, while cutting some glare, does very little to reduce the heat flowing through the windows. Quality window films not only serve to reduce the glare across the entire window they are applied to, they also can block a significant amount of heat from entering the vehicle. So, not only will window tint help you look cool, you will be staying cooler also.
- Possible Savings at The Gas Pumps – Most of us are aware that running the AC in our vehicle reduces the gas mileage. According to some estimates at auto.edu, it can reduce our gas mileage by 3 miles per gallon. If you can keep your vehicle interior comfortable without using AC, or using less of it, it stands to reason that you would get better fuel efficiency. As mentioned above, window tint can block heat from entering the vehicle. This will keep the interior cooler and reduce the need for AC to keep the occupant comfortable. The end result of this is that you may not only be more comfortable, you may also be saving a little every time you fill your tank.
